Love Actually: Close-Up on Albert Brooks’ "Modern Romance"

17 February 2017 1:58 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Albert Brooks' Modern Romance (1981) is showing February 17 - March 19, 2017 in the United Kingdom in the series The Rom Com Variations.  She’s out of my lifeShe’s out of my lifeAnd I don’t know whether to laugh or cry—Michael Jackson, “She’s Out of My Life”“cras amet qui numquam amavitquique amavit cras amet”—The Magus (John Fowles) Life comes at you fast. As someone recently on the receiving end of an unexpected breakup, I was a little cool on the idea of watching Albert Brooks’ 1981 film Modern Romance—whose premise was summarized, on the one-sheets at the time, in the following terms: “Robert was madly in love with Mary. Mary was madly in love with Robert. Under the circumstances they did the only thing they could do… they broke up.” But then, in that brutal darkness of heartache, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Valentine’s Day Massacre, Andrzej Wajda, ‘Make Way for Tomorrow’ & More

9 February 2017 8:15 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Anthology Film Archives

The annual “Valentine’s Day Massacre” offers films by Pialat, Elaine May, Albert Brooks, and Zulawski.

Dziga Vertov features screen.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

An Andrzej Wajda series begins running this weekend.

The very bracing double bill of Make Way for Tomorrow and Tokyo Story screens throughout the weekend.

New to Streaming: ‘Arrival,’ ‘A Separation,’ ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘The Love Witch,’ and More

3 February 2017 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. »

Ellen Uses ‘Finding Dory’ Plot Summary To Take On Trump’s Muslim Ban — Watch

31 January 2017 7:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This past Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily banning people from seven countries from entering America, including permanent residents with green cards. This decision sparked massive protests nationwide over the weekend at various airports where people demanded that immigrants who have been detained or are under threat of deportation be set free. On Saturday, Trump screened the Pixar film “Finding Dory” in the White House. While those two events may seem unrelated, comedian and daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, star of “Finding Dory,” subtly explains why they’re connected. Watch the segment below.

One of the Greatest Film Noir Stars of Them All? Four Crime Classics to Remember

21 January 2017 11:36 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Dana Andrews movies: Film noir actor excelled in both major and minor crime dramas. Dana Andrews movies: First-rate film noir actor excelled in both classics & minor fare One of the best-looking and most underrated actors of the studio era, Dana Andrews was a first-rate film noir/crime thriller star. Oftentimes dismissed as no more than a “dependable” or “reliable” leading man, in truth Andrews brought to life complex characters that never quite fit into the mold of Hollywood's standardized heroes – or rather, antiheroes. Unlike the cynical, tough-talking, and (albeit at times self-delusionally) self-confident characters played by the likes of Alan Ladd, Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, and, however lazily, Robert Mitchum, Andrews created portrayals of tortured men at odds with their social standing, their sense of ethics, and even their romantic yearnings. Not infrequently, there was only a very fine line separating his (anti)heroes from most movie villains. »
